I really love this place! A lovely room with a balcony with an ocean view! Hanging out at the pool with the tiki bar is great fun. The great thing about the Empress is you can make it whatever kind of vacation you want it to be. If you want to have a nice quiet week go for the oceanside....

Loud, a room that saw its better days 25 years ago. Not clean. We paid 280 Dollars for a night. That was wasting money. There was rumble til 5 in the night. Never again. There is a number of nice and clean houses nearby. The only good thing is: it is close to the stone pony.

The hotel was clean and there was complimentary breakfast buffet. Parking is very limited and I checked in right at 3pm and there was no parking available. Bathroom and shower was teeny tiny. If you arent partying at the pool or club its probably not worth the price. If you are, its a good deal.

Went for a girl's night to see Springsteen related sights in the area. Good location and we lucked out with parking in the adjacent lot. Had a 3rd floor room facing the pool and although we stayed out late and didn't go to bed until 1:00 am, the continuous thump of the disco music at the pool went on until...

I stayed here over the July 4th weekend with a friend of mine. I chose this hotel as it caters to a gay clientele. Although the rooms are dated, they are clean and large and the AC was good. The pool is really nice and their is an on-sight disco. The Sunday T Dance was awesome. This hotel is in...

Overall, The Empress is in a great location and hotel staff was super friendly and helpful. Room could have been a little cleaner (chairs and table on small deck had bird poop on them) yuk, and the bathroom was old and outdated (no room to put anything and hotel toiletries kept falling off of back of toilet). Had a small...
